Lensmen Meetings


Our regular meetings are at the Flint Farmers Market in downtown Flint.  We meet from 6:30 - 8:30 pm., September through May, on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, unless otherwise announced.  The Farmers Market is located at 300 E. First Street, and parking is in the parking lot at the corner of E. Second Street and Stevens Street.  The door to use is at the top of the ramp located at the truck dock in the south east corner (it is not one of the four public entrances).
**Note:  due to security issues the door will be locked shortly after 6:30 pm, so you must be there by then if you plan to attend a meeting.

Everyone is welcome, from amateur to professional, and you do not have to be a member to attend.
